Why is an OEM Processor not covered by AMD’s limited warranty?

​OEM processors are sold in bulk with no additional hardware or documentation to vendors or system builders for the purpose of manufacturing and sale of prebuilt computer systems. Some vendors or system builders may package and sell OEM processors directly to its customers. Through this process, AMD cannot guarantee that the processor was properly handled, packaged, installed or used with compatible components and therefore does not provide warranty directly for the end user.​
